It does not matter whether the software was distributed. Bookeen have to provide full source code & toolchain (if not available with the operating system) along with the instruction how to re-create binaries.

If they have modified source code, they have to provide patches. If they did not, they have to provide links to exact versions of software they compiled and distributed. Full stop.
